You will roast motors. You will neet to de-tune the motor if you want it to not fade. CO27's run better with them than a monster based.
I wonder how they will be with the new X-Stock Motor
On a second note... about charging and such
Charging-Set the Charger at 5-10mV per pack if your racing outdoors and its warm! I noticed when chargin gmy Hurricane 1.212 3800's that when the charger was set at 10mV per pack. It got alittle to warm, so i set it to 5mV per pack and the temp is perfect. You might be able to set it to 10-15mV when racing indoor carpet or w/e. I was told by numerous people that cooling your pack while charging is a No-No. So until this day, I just chagrge the pack. You want teh pack around 125 degrees when it stops chargin. Its also nice to still have it warm when your ready to race to get the top voltage.
Discharging.... Discharge 20-30 amps after your race and tray it to .9, then let cool totaly if your going to use it again for the Main. (Being said that you race 2 heats and a Main)
If your not going to use the pack again, i would recommend leaving what ever capacity left in teh pack after that race until next week comes around. When next week comes. Discharge it at 20-30 amps, then stick it on the tray and tray it to .9 (I use the smart tray) Then let it totaly kool, put a fan on it to increase the process if your in a hurry. THen Charge at 6 amps with the charger 5-15mV per pack with the outside temp permitting settings.
Storage. I just leave what ever capacity left in teh pack after teh race from the week before.
If your not going to use ur pack for a month or more. I would charge it at 5 amps fully. When you come back from retirement, throw that pack in and run it in practice!
This is how i do all my IB/GP packs. My IB3800's are taking 4400mah!
